Thank you JCF!
In the past I have not had a great experience at this hospital, but yesterday blew me away! Every single person, it was about 6 different people helped me and were so nice. I may have a broken foot, but they made me feel important and cared for. Thank you JCF. -Sabrina G
In a freak fall I thought I broke my arm. The pain was beyond intense. A friend took me to the ER at John C Fremont, 10 minutes away. I received pain medication and care within 15 minutes of arrival. I felt so lucky to have this incredible resource right here in our own backyard. The alternative of enduring the long painful drive to Merced would have been exhausting but also would have gobbled up the entire day. I was in/out of our local ER in less than 90 minutes. The nursing staff, doctor and Xray technician were all caring, professional and efficient. I was home resting in bed before long. Thankfully my arm is not broken and I'm glad to have had the excellent care and info. Thank you John C. Fremont healthcare providers! Our Hospital rocks. -Ruthie Fruehauf
I just love JCF! Early this morning I went to the ER to get help with a food bolus that was stuck in my esophagus for 2 days. The nurses and the doc were so reassuring and efficient. I was treated, observed, and released within 2 hours. Once again, thankful for our great hospital. Jeanne
Miracle in the ER
My history with JCF Healthcare District is long and varied. I gave birth to my youngest son in the E.R when they were no longer doing births there and it was a beautiful experience. All of my 5 children have been treated for various ailments, broken bones and more there, always with a great outcome. My elderly father was stabilized and transported several times. Without this option, he wouldn't have made it. My family has been referred to various Dr's throughout the central valley with ease and always a positive outcome. It is not perfect, but it is completely necessary for our community. As far as I am concerned, it is a vital facility and without it the entire community would suffer.
I just wanted to share my breast cancer story. One year ago this month JCF mammogram technician found a suspicious spot in my right breast. In order to rule anything out she referred me to get an ultrasound. After the ultrasound confirmed micro calcifications, they suggested to be sure it was nothing, I should have a biopsy. We did the biopsy and the result was suspicious cells but no positive result for cancer. We saw the surgeon and after explaining everything suggested we could wait and monitor the spot or we could do a lumpectomy and remove the growth. My mother had a history of breast cancer so we chose to do the lumpectomy. Now mind you this was during the height of Covid 2020 and nothing about this process was easy, including going to every appointment alone, with my husband sitting in the car. Even the day of surgery my husband sat in the hospital parking lot for 12 hours and waited. We were able to FaceTime but it wasn't the same. The surgery went well and healing began. 1 week later we met with the surgeon completely expecting to hear that there was no cancer and everything was good. NOT! There were indeed cancer cells and we had caught this horrible disease very early! Again we were offered the option to do radiation, which we did. We drove everyday 3 hours round trip to Fresno for a 5 minute zap. The technicians were amazing and so kind. 15 sessions later we were done and now more healing began. Last step, oncologist, who put me on estrogen blockers for 5 years. This last week I had a mammogram that came back clear!!!! One year down. Everyone we encountered on this journey has been amazing, kind, supportive and caring. Please if you are. Reading this and haven't had your mammogram- go do it! Early detection is a life saver.
